Was just trying to download a file off of 37Signals’ Basecamp, and got an error message – turns out the error message was an XML snippet from the Amazon S3 webservice.. Which is not really that interesting to anyone other than real Geeks who are wondering who is going to supply their massive storage needs in the near future, and who else is already doing it to make their decision any easier … ;-)
_ Amazon.com: Amazon S3, Amazon Simple Storage Service, Unlimited Online Storage: Amazon Web Services
Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.
Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.
